Erie County, New York / Green-Lake

In the early 1900's, philanthropist Harry Yates invested in thousands of acres of land in Orchard Park. He created Green Lake and donated it, along with the surrounding property known as Yates Park, to the community. It became Orchard Park's principal recreational facility, presenting an unrivaled setting for residents to relax and enjoy summer activities. Green Lake, the focal point of the Park, offers a sandy beach, sailing, swimming and fishing.
